Mark
Tell the folks at home what you're doing Roger

Roger
I'm writing one great song --

Mark
The phone rings.

Roger
Yesss!

Mark
We screen.

Roger & Mark's Answering Machine
"Speak" ... ("Beeeep!")

Collins
"Chestnuts roasting ---"

Roger & Mark
Collins!

Collins
I'm downstairs

Mark
Hey!

Collins
Roger picked up the phone??

Mark
No, it's me.

Collins
Throw down the key.

Mark
A wild night is now pre-ordained

Collins
I may be detained.

Mark
What does he mean...?
(Phone rings again)
What do you mean - detained?

Benny
Ho ho ho.

Mark & Roger
Benny! Shit.

Benny
Dudes, I'm on my way

Mark & Roger
Great! Fuck

Benny
I need the rent

Mark
What rent?

Benny
This past year's rent which I let slide

Mark
Let slide? You said we were 'golden'

Roger
When you bought the building

Mark
When we were roommates

Roger
Remember - you lived here!?

Benny
How could I forget?
You, me, Collins and Maureen
How is the drama queen?

Mark
She's performing tonight

Benny
I know.
Still her production manager?

Mark
Two days ago I was bumped

Benny
You still dating her?

Mark
Last month I was dumped

Roger
She's in love

Benny
She's got a new man?

Mark
Well - no

Benny
What's his name?

Both
Joanne

Benny
Rent, my amigos, is due
Or I will have to evict you
Be there in a few

Mark
The power blows ...
